Jennifer Leahy - Vocal Music
I grew up in Oshkosh, WI and graduated from Oshkosh North High School. I attended UW-Oshkosh and hold Bachelor’s degrees in journalism, music with an emphasis in vocal performance, and music education. I also did graduate work in music history and literature at UW-Milwaukee. I currently live in Appleton with my husband and our son, Elijah. When I’m not teaching, I like to spend time with family and read. I also enjoy singing with the newVoices choir, which is out of Appleton.
I taught private piano and voice lessons for 10 years. I enjoyed it a lot and wanted to be able to do it on a bigger scale. When I was in high school I found the place that I belonged when I was making music. I enjoyed all aspects of school, but the choir and band rooms were the highlights of my high school career. I hope that my students can find that place in my classroom. I want to share with them the passion that I developed in high school and have nurtured since then. I hope that they will leave with, at the very least, a bigger appreciation for music in their lives.
